TE RAKAU BIRDING is Wairarapa’s pre-eminent birding tour operator. Living near Ocean Beach and Onoke Spit since 1984 and being very involved in the preservation of these areas we have planted and developed our 14 hectare property expressly to attract a wide range of native

NZ and introduced or migratory species. We have also operated our Te Rakau Cabins accommodation business to provide a rustic, inexpensive option for visiting birders and for the growing number of cyclists using the Wellington-Wairarapa Cycle Trail.

RIMUTAKA SHUTTLES not only make your Rimutaka Rail Trail easy but also specialize in passenger transport for the South Wairarapa. Based in Featherston, they can provide transport for weddings, Martinborough wineries, chartered tours

of the region, conference groups as well as cycle transfers for the Rimutaka Cycle Trail, Wellington airport shuttles and festivals. Rimutaka Shuttles have a van with capacity up to 11 passengers and a minibus with capacity up to 19 passengers.

SOUTHERN WILDERNESS specialises in innovative day and multi-day Gourmet Guided Walks through the three National Parks of the Nelson Tasman region. The Heaphy Track in Kahurangi National Park, The Coastal Track in Abel Tasman

National Parkand the Travers Sabine Circuit in Nelson Lakes National Park are the flagship multi-day walks in the region. This is a great time to try this experience over the summer holidays!

GREEN JERSEY CYCLE TOURS was founded by Stuart Edwards and Lucia Zanmonti in 2011. In 2014, Joe and Pam Howells shared the vision and joined the team. We envisage that our tours are the most popular way to experience the beauty of the Wellington region and for Wellingtonians to enjoy North Island cycle routes. We provide an experience that is not rivaled in the Wellington region with top quality bicycles, beautiful tour routes, reliable support systems, great food and a fun atmosphere.
